ok, so i am not trying to shove any hints down to the home front or anything, but these are really great little mementos for your loved one(s). and i might even promise that this will be the last of the valentine day suggestions at least for today. the austin artist anne kiel, who hand-crafts her own work, has stamped these discs with terms of endearment such as ma chérie, ma belle and mon lapin. she has a similar series in spanish. the discs can be brass or sterling and the 16 inch chains come in sterling or 14k gold-fill. you can pick one up at supermarket for $23 each, so maybe a couple might fit into the budget.
